Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Two of the island's best natural pools lie below Trafalgar Falls, which is easily accessible by a trail beginning at Papillote Wilderness Retreat, five miles inland from the capital, Roseau.
  • Hire one of the guides waiting at the start of the trail to assist you in crossing a river to the falls and climbing over slippery rocks at the pools.
  • Don't go past the viewing platform, near the trailhead, if there is a chance of rain. Flash floods are frequent and dangerous at both the river and natural pools.
Trafalgar Falls offers visitors a double treat with two distinctive waterfalls meeting up at two natural pools. The falls are visible from a viewing deck located about ten minutes by foot from the parking area. The pools are an easy 20-minute hike
